AbstractRegina Felix’s Sedução e heroísmo: imaginação de mulher is a welcome contribution to the historiography of women’s writing in Brazil. Focusing her analysis on four narrative works, two by Maria Benedita Bormann (1853-1895) and two by Emília Bandeira de Melo (1852-1910), Felix successfully shows how Bormann’s and Melo’s literary representations capture the ongoing changes in societal gender roles, namely the process whereby middle-class Brazilian women moved from the patriarchal “casa grande” to the public sphere of the street, where work issues and political voices prevailed.
